of the crisis, governor romney -- and you're talking about this again tonight -- talked about the weakness, talked about apologies from the obama administration. was that really appropriate right in the middle of the crisis? ryan: on that same day, the obama administration had the exact same position. let's recall that they disavowed their own statement that they had put up earlier in the day in cairo. so we had the same position. it's never too early to speak out for our values. we should have spoken out right away when the green revolution was up and starting when the mullahs in iran were attacking their people. we should not have called bashar assad a reformer when he was turning his russian-provided guns on his own people. we should always stand up for peace, for democracy, for individual rights. and we should not be imposing these devastating defense cuts because what that does when we equivocate on our values, it makes us more weak. it projects weakness, and when we look weak, our adversaries are much more willing to test us, and our allies -- biden: with all due respect, that's a bu

started the super pac. >> but they don't play any role, romney can talk -- people leave. of course, they do. you don't expect a bunch of romney people to leave and start a gingrich super pac. the point is that i've been out of contact with the campaign. if we take it from there, let's go on and look more at a couple of key points. the first, the real money is not in (c)(4)'s. there figures to october 6 show that super pacs spend about twice as much as c-4 groups. that's not really what the big money is. >> is not just the stuff that is reported to the federal election commission. will have to go to that in a minute. (c)(4) groups or fashion of spending yourself in this campaign. they will not spend as much in total as the obama campaign alone will. that's, all (c)(4) groups for all races in this cycle. and that's just the reality of the. the obama campaign will spend more. let's talk about who's -- these are ordinary citizens and, of course, they're not ordinary citizens but let's think about this a bit. when foster friess funded a super pac back for rick santorum, today keep ordin
administration. governor romney mentioned of course the 2014 drawdown in his monday speech. what he didn't talk about is that it was a strategic partnership agreement that the administration had negotiate with the afghan government, which will keep american soldiers in afghanistan until 2024. do you have a sense of what the minimum number of soldiers should be going forward? >> let me clarify a couple of things. there are more than a few former administration folks here who will say that was not the total point man on afghanistan. i was involved, but share the credit with many, many others who probably had more input than i did. the first point i'd like to make about afghanistan and the big difference between a strong and mr. obama is that mr. obama set a deadline, creed, full stop. i was in kabul december 2009 when mr. obama made that speech. and i was talking to isaf people, the people from international force, you know, people who are out there getting shot at from other countries, not just our own. to a man and a woman, there were a lot of women there, they all, almost took no notice of the
george w. bush forever. but that is not what governor romney is talking about. no they are not the same ideas. lucky governor romney. what has governor romney said about the budget? what does he want to increase? ships. 15 ships a year, three submarines a year. very very different from going into iraq or going into iran. we are convinced that the only way to stop the iranians is not to go and invade a country that large, but to be credible about what you are going to do about your sanctions, about your relationship with the israelis. win the iranian cs quarreling with the israelis, they conclude we are not going to do anything. when the iranians see us giving people exemptions, i don't care how you want to word it, and exemption is an exemption is an exemption. if it? like one, that looks like one, it looks like one. when they hear those exemptions they conclude weakness. they conclude lack of credibility. that is what we are talking about. we are not a of warmongers. nobody has set to to go invade anybody. quite the contrary and strength as you know the governor reprieves quite frankly
definitely agree with the lady talking to about the foreign policy issue because i think mitt romney is an opportunist. like he went and disrespected all of our allies. you know, he's just an opportunist. he kisses up to benjamin netanyahu on foreign policy. i think obama is actually steadfast spirit and alchemy type to benjamin netanyahu on the phone for hours, so it's not like he's been dodging them. he doesn't kisses up to our foreign leaders. he talks to them like a leader, just like the debate, obama held his head up high and didn't have his head down, looking down like everybody said he did. as far as the media, i don't think the real motives, i think a lot of people just followed with the media was saying as far as what he was talking about. i mean, what the media didn't hold his head up high. he was very presidential outcome of real calm. i think mitt romney was desperate. >> host: we will have the candidates debate foreign policy specifically in the coming weeks. do you reflect on the earlier part of what he was saying? >> guest: clearly more a common set of questions, but i

both presidential candidates -- lee 11 talked-about the fact that barack obama has a more positive favorable rating than mitt romney, both of them are pretty divided when we look at people's impressions of both candidates they are divided about these candidates and part of that is that they don't see, they don't see everything they want to see in any one candidate so it is not surprising that the economy and jobs is at the top but people like thinking about these other values, and other issues as they are making their choice but having to make the choice between what they are being offered. >> there is a similar methodology the campaign pollsters use as the public pollsters' use. the goals are very different. we are trying to identify whether attitudes people might share, campaign polls are about targeting and trying to influence public opinion because they want to win. sometimes the best strategic advice may be to drive of your opponent's negatives. they all do this. we see it in these ads which will push over $1 billion. a very different sort of dip -- the methods are the same bu
of them talking how barack obama has a more favorable rating and mitt romney both are pretty divisive they are fairly divided. party is they don't see everything they want to see so it is not surprising the economy and jobs that people think about the other issues and they make a choice but this between what they are offered. >> barings is some moller terminology. we year both dipping into rest questions but the goals are different we're trying to identify a broader themes and attitudes campaign polls are about targeting to influence. sometimes the best strategic advice to drive up the negatives. greasy it in these ads with the pledge closed over billion dollars. ha sows to dip into public opinion even though the methods are the same come with the goals are different >> and you need to get the supporters out to vote by talking about solutions that provide compromise. not necessarily a campaign strategy for the most effective to focus on consensus and compromise if you want people to vote for you is the strongest supporters that will be there on election day. >> thank you for coming to
'm also very proud to be here on behalf of the president's re-election campaign to talk about his record on national security and to highlight some to have major differences between -- of the major differences between the president and governor romney. over the past four years, the president has amazed a strong -- amassed a strong record. he'd dealt with foreign crises, taken strong action against those who threaten u.s. interests and has seized the opportunities presented by democratic openings in the middle east and beyond. proven himself to be a tough and smart commander in chief who has remained steady in the face of adversity. under the president's leadership, al-qaeda has been decimated, the iraq war has been ended with honor, u.s. forces in afghanistan have begun a critically important transition, iran has never been more isolated, and the libyan people have a chance to reclaim their freedom following the removal of moammar gadhafi from power. the president has shored up the nation's homeland defenses, redoubled the commitment to america's veterans, stood up for human rights acros
or talking people are just dealing with david. you get up to presidential campaign and one of the things the romney campaign had to do this summer after they won the nomination was what they called build a data science team. increasingly that sort of function is becoming a core function of the campaign. used to be to the extension of data it was left for fund-raising or you could buy vendors our consultants. and now, you know, people will have call them different things but there's basically the core function of a modern campaign to people, especially on the photo site, just crushing and processing data. >> if any of us were to go to the romney campaign or the obama campaign and where to look around the headquarters, how many people, is there a lot of young staff? what does it look like? >> guest: chicago, dozens of people depending i had how you define it, analytics him and then in every state they are hiring for jobs that are dated jobs, voter file managers, targeting directors, that's, you, the obama campaign will have thousands around the country and i guess hundreds of them are dire
can you respond if in the back row of the audience mitt romney stood up and said mr. kaplan, you are being defeatist. you are walking away from america's historical role, america is the essential power and you are talking about necessary decline. >> i am not being defeatist. i am being sly. i want american influence to extend long into the decades but it cannot do that bearing the same exact level of burden we have been bearing now. in the middle east we cannot confront russia, cannot confront china and be the hegemon in the greater middle east in leslie. we have to move closer to vladimir putin to balance against china but at the same time not let countries like vietnam and the philippines drag us into a war with china over the south china sea. it is about clever balancing and in any case the u.s. has so much shale oil deposits in texas, louisiana and other places i could name which is about geography that we are going to be because of energy reserves going to be a significant power for decades to come in any case so now is the time to try to get allies and like-minded others to
, that recent have increased today. romney is giving a speech. by and large it's not likely this late in the day if there's a war on the scale. to have much of an impact. we haven't talk abouted is how people rank the issues. we do have a couple of issues in the poll about the ranking the issue of rlings in the muslim world and the israel issue. people rank it in the top five, but in an open question, not terms in comparison to other issues if you put in there. an republicans oddly enough, tend to rank a little bit higher than democrats. and maybe that's one thing that romney is doing. what would happen if there is an eltion? obviously, if let's say make a difference between romney and obama on this. i think two points. bill made a good point early on how democrats and republicans are operating out of the two different paradigms about the relationship with muslim countries. and you can see in public opinion. the constituencies -- they see it more a civilization that is complex. it is per vai stiff it you -- pervasive. there is a philosophical difference the constituent separate from -- second, i
believe government is a hindrance. but it seems to me people talk about cutting spending. then, of course, when it comes to their actual program, they don't want to cut. we had even the example of governor romney recently suggesting that if we went off the fiscal cliff and we had the spending cuts in defen it was going to kill jobs in virginia. virginia. i mean, you know. it was a program we didn't cut. >> that's we need leadership from the top as governor in gaza. and i will point back into the governors. successful governors do two things really well. they provide leadership and they propose bold initiatives to their legislatures, and they also have a strategy or a blueprint, if you will, for economic growth in their states for the future. those are the successful governors. we need the same type of leadership at the white house. >> no president has had real organization authority since ronald reagan. i would think that needs to come back. i would go so far as to put some back of authority that was lost after the nixon era. but congress has got to help. some committees in congress are n
. this is an election about getting our economy going again and getting the american people back to work. mitt romney's created hundreds of thousands of jobs and understands how to create jobs and also understands what big government can do to destroy jobs in the country. having him out there with his plan and talking about his plan and staying focused on the plan is exactly what needs to happen. as i like to say, he made the sale the other night, and he made the sale in a big way. [cheers and applause] you know, there's a big battleground poll that came out today, democrats and republican pollsters do polls together, and 73% of the people in the battleground poll -- well, this was the gallop poll this morning, 73% of the people who watched the debate thought that mitt romney won. [applause] how about this? how about 63% of the democrats who watched the debate thought that romney won. [applause] listen, i'm just a regular guy with a big job. a lot of you don't know, but i have 11 brothers and sisters, and my dad owned a bar, all right? i'm the last guy in the world who wanted to be a member of the co
